Thank you for your article it was lovely to read. I grew up in a traditional Queenslander built early 1900's in Far North Queensland. I just wanted to add a note about the use of grill fretwork. It was also placed above bedroom doors to help with ventilation.
Thank you for writing your article about fretwork.
